Veneers

Dental veneers are very thin sheets of porcelain or composite material that fit over the existing teeth to enhance the appearance of your teeth. Veneers look natural and custom-made to fit your teeth. Veneers can be used to repair chipped or worn teeth, hide the appearance of severely stained teeth, alter the shape of the teeth, close gaps, and hide misaligned teeth.

Whitening

One of the easiest ways to transform your smile is by whitening your teeth! Years of smoking, drinking coffee, or enjoying red wine can mean your teeth are no longer pearly white, therefore aging the appearance of your teeth. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that will improve your smile instantly by restoring your teeth to a dazzling shade. Ask us how we can brighten your smile today!

Full-mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction or FMR is a treatment that affects all of the teeth in the mouth has the goal of restoring full function. FMR is typically for patients who have medical conditions that affect the function of the mouth. FMR can treat missing teeth, unhealthy gums, and restoration of missing structures of the oral cavity just to name a few.
Surgical and Prosthetic Dentistry

Surgical and Prosthetic Dentistry

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in the back of the mouth and typically erupt by age 18-25. Wisdom teeth Extractions are recommended when they are impacted, coming in at the wrong angle or the patient’s jaw doesn’t have enough room to accommodate the teeth.

Surgical and Prosthetic Dentistry

Implants

Implants are a foundation for replacement teeth and function as replacement tooth roots made of titanium. The implant is similar to the shape of a screw and is placed in the jawbone and then allowed to set and bond with the natural bone. A connector or abutment is then placed on top of the dental implant, this connector will hold and support the crown. The crown is then custom-created to blend in with your natural teeth and voila your smile’s natural look and function is restored.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in the back of the mouth and typically erupt by age 25. Extraction is recommended when the wisdom teeth are impacted, coming in at the wrong angle, the patient’s jaw doesn’t have enough room to accommodate the teeth, or the teeth have cavities.

Prosthetics

A dental prosthetic is an appliance placed inside the mouth to replace one or more missing teeth. Prostheses can be removable or fixed and serve to restore the natural look, feel, and function of your teeth. Types of prostheses include crowns, implants, partial and full dentures, and dental bridges.

All on Four

An All-on-four dental implant uses the same concept of a dental implant which is a tiny screw-like titanium tooth-root replacement. Except in the case of an all on four, four implants are placed on top and four implants are placed on the bottom. The implants serve as the main anchors for a denture instead of an individual crown. This technique is used for patients who have several missing teeth and serves as an efficient and permanent solution.
General Dentistry

General Dentistry

Your biannual dental appointment is a time for you to receive a routine examination and teeth cleaning. General dentistry screens for potential issues and finds the best way to prevent their progression.

General Dentistry

Cleanings

Dental cleanings are a critical part of maintaining your oral health and should be done every six months. During a cleaning, your dentist will remove excess plaque and tartar that your toothbrush missed. This will allow your teeth to remain bright, prevent cavities, help prevent tooth loss by treating gum disease, and also help identify any dental diseases early.

Fillings

Fillings can be sued to treat a cavity or to repair a cracked, broken, or worn tooth. When treating a cavity, the doctor will remove the damaged portion of the tooth and then fill the area. The materials used for filling include gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, and composite resins.

Crowns

A crown is a great option for restoring the appearance of the natural tooth while protecting it from any further damage. A crown is a “cap” that fits over the tooth and covers the entire visible part of the tooth and can be made from a variety of materials such as porcelain, ceramic, glass, gold-alloy, and precious-metal bonded to porcelain. Crowns are cemented into place and can last up to 30 years depending on the care you give it and the material you choose.

Root Canals

Root canals are used to save an infected tooth by removing the bacteria from the infected root canal, therefore, preventing reinfection. The procedure consists of removing the inflamed or infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, then filling the gap and sealing the tooth. Saving the natural tooth will allow the patient to continue to chew efficiently, bite with a normal amount of force and sensation, maintain a normal natural appearance, and to protect other teeth from excessive wear.

Bridges

Bridges serve to link the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge consists of placing two or more crowns for teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the false tooth or teeth in between. The anchoring teeth can be natural teeth or even implants. Bridges are considered part of a restoration technique that is both cosmetic and functional because bridges restore the natural look of a smile and allow the patient to maintain the shape of his or her shape but also restores the patient’s ability to chew, speak, and bite properly.
